Been here 2 years. I've had roaches a number of times, despite keeping my place clean...they are literally in the walls. Management has sprayed a couple times but they always come back. As the building shifts the paint falls off in huge chunks throughout the building. Tiny ants are ubiquitous, leaving food out for even a few minutes summons them. It took several months for them to fix the elevator when it broke down. During heavy rain water leaks in my bathroom. The appliances are very old. Most of the power outlets do not have grounds. Mail theft is also an issue, and there have been vehicle break-ins in the basement parking garage. One of the basement dryers has been out of service for many months.

I lived in this building for 12years, in apt13...I can tell you the people complaining, do exactly that complain complain complain, the management is extremely kind and professional...... The people who had bad experiences brought it on them selves. The only problem in the building lives on the first floor.... Creepy little guy withbvdeo cameras set up.... Perving out.

When I first moved in, this place was half decent. Great location, though the building is old, the elevator is ancient and there were ants.Then a few months later, I noticed a couple leaks in the ceiling. I mentioned this multiple times to the super who did absolutely nothing about it. Several months later, the leak is still not fixed and because of the leak, there is now water damage, mold, and floors that are so rotten and swollen that the front door barely opened. Then the cockroaches came. Hundreds of them. They are now everywhere in the building, from the basement where the laundry room is, all the way up to the 7th floor.

I would definitely not recommend this building as I was genuinely concerned for my health and safety due to the water damage, mold and roaches. Do yourself a favour and stay away from this building.

Infested with ants so all food needs to be stored properly. If your heat breaks on a weekend you are waiting until Monday for repair. Even in the coldest winter days, all they will do is give you a tiny space heater. Old building, terrible appliances. Only two washers and dryers for the whole building and the washers flood. Large apartments and cheap price. Cockroaches! Conveniently located but again ants and cockroaches. Laneway to get out of underground parking treacherous in the winter.

Cockroach ridden building that hasn't been updated since the 1950's

Wired in appliances that work half the time and faucets that leak constantly

An elevator that never works and landlords that just don't care

We fought for months for repairs before giving up and moving out
